Pretty cool to have run to 50 controls in 65 mins! Great preparation for WOC!

Except I didn't do nearly all of them :)

I should have explained that the normal route is actually Thierry's route, and mine is the red route (for contrast).

Oh, I didn't realize that! I was certainly impressed, but I guess Thierry is very impressive, so it makes sense too. I did however believe you could do that!!

No offense to TGIF, but there are in fact a couple of controls where you grab a tighter line than him. It is actually nice to see how you match up in this terrain.

Totally thought the same thing when I looked at the map again:)

Except that he didn't make any mistakes, and I clearly missed 4 and then was confused on 9 (though the swamp was tiny and I did run by it, but couldn't tell since there were no controls). All about the flow!

Time for some map memory exercises.
